From Rod Scott
It is with incredible sadness that I have learned a dear friend, Sam Sloan has passed away. Lovely man will be missed.
Wow, that’s properly out of the blue. RIP Sam.
Bugger!! I was on my Photo G PR course at Cosford with Sam in November 1985 before being posted to RAF Laarbruch the following January. Didn’t know him well and never saw him since, but I do remember him fondly as a bit of a character. I always thought he would have been a good guy to work with in a section. Hope he had a good life.
I can only add that I am also shocked at this news. I liked Sam I had a few good laughs with him. Not seen him or heard of him much once I was posted to Gatow from Northolt in 87. A sad day. Condolences to all his family.
Sad news indeed. RIP Sam.
Terrible shock to hear of the passing of Sam. So many great days we spent out. Happy memories
RIP Sam, you left behind many happy memories, you’ll not be forgotten! 😪
I’ll always have some great memories of Sam Sloan , he really put himself out when the RAFP were trying to arrest me one time. R.I.P
Very shocked indeed. I was at Cosford with Sam when on our G courses. I later ran into him in Rheindahlen on a few visits there in 1982-4 when based at Gutersloh, later at Wycombe but most recently in Brighton & Hove. A really great character who will be sadly missed. Blue skies Sam.
Oh my god, great man and always great company. I met him in Brighton a couple of years ago and had amazing banter. Will raise a glass to him tonight.
Sam left the RAF in the late 80’s to work in Saudi Arabia I think it was as a commercial photographer, he came back and located to Scotland and became one of the top photographers, for example RBS were one of his clients among many other household names. I’ll remember him fondly. R.I.P
Knew Sam from RIC (N ) , 84 – 85 ish, top bloke, his passing is a shock, remember he sold his car to Darryl Wray, Ford Fiesta I think, PSR 162Y, can see Sam now in my mind, RIP Sam
